I've updated all of my clients and docker to leia but it looks like the headless docker is not longer receiving updates from either sonarr or radarr and from the kodi.log it looks like nothing happens when they attempt to connect to it for update the library.

What am I supposed to be looking for on that link? 
Leia tag

Nevermind, opening on a mobile shows the page differently.

 

I have added the leia tag to the run command already and I know it's working as the headless web interface shows updates that I've added via other clients.

Then the container is working and on the right version.  You tested the settings in Sonarr/Radarr?

Yep, they both claim they were able to successfully talk to it, if I change a port etc. then they say they've failed. Worked fine with the krypton tag.

 

Unfortunately I can't find many logs on the docker etc. to see where it's failing. There may be a way to enable verbose logging on the docker to get more of a clue.

OK, enabled debug logging and I get this when sending a test from sonarr/radarr/lidarr etc:

I've tried trashing my appdata entirely and same issue. Either sonarr/lidarr/radarr are sending something weird (which can't be the case as my other clients all respond to a test) or the headless docker has an issue somewhere.

So strangely this now seems to be working...

 

No idea why as I tried starting afresh and same issue so reverted back to my previous advancedsettings.xml and sources.xml and now it's seemingly working!

Is this still the only method (whether it's working or not?) of having a headless sql database on unraid?  I dont believe I ever got this fully setup months ago, and had a headache of a time trying to.  I'd still love to get my 2 NUC's linked together with a mysql rather than just trakt watched status sync across.

 

I remember trying to put this together with the advancedsettings and sources xml files, along with maraidb and this docker, kodi displayed as headless off unraid, but I could never get anything to properly sync to the other NAS.  Is there a better method of headless these days?  Doesn't seem this thread is active anymore or I would presume this was the go to.

I gave up trying to get the headless docker to co-operate and ended up running Ubuntu in a VM to run a master Kodi client to do all the scanning etc

Yeah that's definitely way more than I'm trying to attempt to get this running, but I appreciate the info.  I'll just stick with trakt for sync watched and deal with fast forwarding or whatever if I switch NUC's in different rooms when watching something mid-way.

Fairly sure Trakt keeps an eye on times too

I am at a complete loss as to how to get Kodi-headless working... Here is what I have done so far:

1. install the docker

2. install mariadb and create user/pass

3. configure advancedsettings.xml on the headless server with IP/Port/user/pass on the docker

4. copy over sources.xml from kodi client to the kodi server

5. enter headless IP/Port/user/pass in kodi clent advancedsettings.xml

5. restart the docker.....

 

Nothing happens.... what did i miss? how is everyone getting this to work?

I think I configured my client first and then copied over advancedsettings.xml and sources.xml to the headless docker.

 

When you say nothing happens, what do you mean?

Did you configure radar/ sonar to have that kodi instance to update the library when a download is completed?

I gave up on it. I'm using plex kodi connect.... does the same thing, but you have to have a plex server.
